During a Grassroots Meeting of the Texas Association of School Boards held last week, Osvaldo Romero, a member of the Robstown Independent School District's Board of Trustees, was appointed to represent ESC Region 2 on the statewide TASB Legislative Advisory Council.

The meeting was held Feb. 10 at the Region 2 Education Service Center in Corpus Christi.

The grassroots process is intended to provide TASB with input from school board members across the state about legislative issues facing Texas school districts.

"This is an affirmation that Robstown ISD can effectively represent area school districts and that we understand the most important legislative issues affecting school districts in this region," Romero said. "I'm not aware of any previous RISD trustee being afforded this opportunity, so I'll work very hard to ensure that our voice is heard and our concerns are acted upon."
